Sarah Siddall1818 A Quaker Sampler

Hello everyone,

I wish to thank Nicola and Jo for the invitation to join the blog. I love looking at all the beautiful samplers and do enjoy watching the progress being made. It is inspiring and keeps me motivated and I need that. I, like all of you, keep thinking what sampler do I want to do next? I'm not decisive as there're so many I would like to do. I will have to live to be 150 and then some to get them done. I found this sampler in my stash last April/May after being invited to join the blog. I wanted to see if I could still stitch on 40 ct. linen. I was working at that time and I tried to stitch on the weekends and in the evenings as time allowed. I have since retired from work and plan to spend more time stitching. I have numerous samplers in my stash but I keep finding new patterns that I would like to stitch!

Welcome to the group Jackie. Sarah S. is a beautiful sampler and you are doing a lovely job on it. I completed this sampler about 1.5 years ago and had it framed. I must say that when I catch a glimpse of it each day, I admire it more and more. Enjoy...
